Full description
Over five million tourists visit the Vatican each year. This is great, however, popularity comes at a price. For many people, visiting the Vatican means crowds, queuing, frustration, and endless hustle. These are not the kind memories you want to take away from your Italian holiday.

As part of this tour, you won't have to exit the Vatican Museums and walk to the distant second entrance in St. Peter’s Square to enter the basilica. You’ll enter St. Peter’s Basilica through a private passage behind the Sistine Chapel. Marvel at the spectacular collection of art in the Vatican Museums and see Michelangelo’s stunning fresco, The Last Judgment, in the Sistine Chapel. At the end of the guided Vatican tour you are welcome to stay and explore the basilica on your own.
